Syria says aerial defenses intercept ‘Israeli air aggression’ over Damascus area

Syrian official media says early Friday that air defenses responded to “Israeli air aggression” from the direction of Lebanese territory.

The attack targeted a number of sites around Damascus and there were some material losses, state media adds.

Earlier, state media network SANA said air defenses shot down “most” of the missiles launched by Israeli fighter jets from over the Golan Heights, citing a military source, but that there were “material losses.”

The strikes come a day after Damascus International Airport reportedly reopened following repeated Israeli strikes.
